Not sure this is the right place but...

One of the stock sites I upload to is

http://www.mostphotos.com/?ref=25491

I have made a grand total of 0.70 euro in six months.

Why bother I here you cry.

I love the idea that they offer a one click download of all my images and there is no quality control over what I submit.

I.E totally free off site back up (as long as they are still in business).

Better spend it in Greece while you still can! :D

Great tip about the free back-up, do they compress files? :)

It's only free while they're in business and assuming they have a good back-up system in place.

The only off site back-up I trust is my own hard drives stored off site.

And they offer images taken in National Trust properties (and a lot others) as Royalty Free (on the whole the NT object to their properties being used for adverts for contraception/female hygene/National Front, without getting a cut of the sales fee).

I'd be very careful, unlesss you are sure you own all rights to everything in an image, about submitting to this site.

Royalty Free is a great money turning idea, you set up a website, buy the storage (which is cheap if you are a commercial buyer), get amateur photographers to provide the content and write the agreement such that all liability sits with the photographer.

Checking the link you gave, you get the website but not your gallery.

There are issuesd about teh content as they don't vet anything, so yes other people have stuff as royalty free there that shouldn't be.

I am not sure about teh compression thing tbh, it may download as a zip file, would this matter ?
